    Question Map transfer

    How do I transfer a map from another mod into my vanilla imperial campaign?

    Default Re: Map transfer

    Alright , if you don't want to make changes to that map , it's a pretty simple job :

    For instance , you want the RS map . You'll have to copy all (map) files , and paste them in the appropriate folder for your vanilla RTW .

    First , make backup copies of your vanilla files of the following files in case things go wrong :
    descr_regions
    descr_terrain
    map_climates
    map_FE (although i don't know if this is really needed)
    map_features
    map_ground_types
    map_heights
    map_regions
    map_roughness
    map_trade_routes
    water_surface
    radar_map1
    radar_map2
    descr_strat


    To make a backup file , simply rename it as original map_regions for instance ;)

    So , go to (now we'll use RS map , so RS directory , but you can use any mod you want) RS(or your mod)/data/maps/base , and there copy the following files :

    descr_regions
    descr_terrain
    map_climates
    map_FE (although i don't know if this is really needed)
    map_features
    map_ground_types
    map_heights
    map_regions
    map_roughness
    map_trade_routes
    water_surface (i'm also not sure if this is needed , but it's best to do it anyway :) )

    Now paste them in

    RTW/data/maps/base , over the concerning files . be sure to make backups of them first though .

    Now go to RS/data/world/maps/campaign/imperial_campaign

    There open map_radar1 with a picture editing program (GIMP , photoshop , Paint Shop Pro , ..) and resize it to the size of your map_regions.tga file . To see what size your map_regions.tga file is , simply open descr_terrain (the new one , so the one from our mod) and there on the first line should the dimensions be listed .

    Example (don't use these dimensions , they are just an example !)

    Code:
    dimensions
    {
    	width  425
    	height  337
    }
    Now resize your radar_map1 file to them , so in my case :

    425*337 ..

    Then open up radar_map2 , and here again ,, resize it to the dimensions of your map_regions , but twice the amount of pixels . So if you have 425 width , change it to 850 , and if you have 337 height , change it to 674 .

    Now go to RTW/data/world/maps/base , and delete the map.rwm file . Now if you run RTW , you should have your new(/mod) map . however , use the -show_err command , in case things go wrong .

    Things will most likely go wrong , since the co÷rds in your descr_strat file won' match the ones in your new map . if this problem occurs , you could ask again in twcenter or this forum :)

    PS : i hope i haven't forgotten anything , if so , please correct me !

    grtz,
